1-Day Virtual Event
Timings in USA CST (Central Standard Time)
. Welcome to IEC 61850 USA 2021. The conference focusses on real-life implementation experiences, and showcases 12+ utility case-studies with a focus on creating IEC 61850 feasibility studies, developing specifications, designing station bus and process bus architectures, configuring, testing, operating, maintaining and managing complex multi-vendor multi-edition systems, and fine-tuning the time synchronization, cybersecurity, and protocol integration aspects of the system for optimal performance.
Welcome to IEC 61850 USA 2021
The inaugural IEC 61850 USA 2021 virtual conference draws together pioneering IEC 61850 implementation leaders and specialists for an intensive day of utility case-study reviews. Join this ground-breaking assessment of innovative pilot projects and commercial deployments, and understand the lessons learnt and management approved roadmaps that will help you drive your own IEC 61850 programs with greater ease and speed.
The conference focusses on real-life implementation experiences and showcases utility case-studies in the areas of IEC 61850 feasibility studies, developing specifications, designing station bus and process bus architectures, configuration, testing, operation, maintenance and managing complex multi-vendor multi-edition systems. It also addresses complex challenges around fine-tuning the time synchronization, cybersecurity, and protocol integration aspects of the system for optimal performance. In addition to exploring the applications of IEC 61850 within legacy and new substations, the program delves deep into inter-substation, substation to control centre, and DER applications, paving the way for the application of the standard across the wider smart grid.
This programme consists of 12 x case-studies, 3 x technology innovation presentations, 4 x live Q&A panel sessions, a 90-minute roundtable discussion session, all in just one intensive high-value day.

What past participants had to say
“A very useful time, open exchange of ideas and information. Excellent real-world presentations.”Allan Wales, Distribution Systems Specialist, SP Energy Networks
"An excellent opportunity to look further than the end of your own nose and acknowledge that other people's solutions to shared problems may be far better than yours"Julio E. Dominguez, SAS Designer, UFD
“For me the IEC 61850 workshop was very useful to get a better idea of what the standard is and what it means. Different use cases that were presented during the conference gives me a good idea of the benefits and options.”Hans Slootjes, Specialist, Stedin Netbeheer B.V.
“Excellent opportunity to network in PACS-related subject. Very close to implementation sharing of ideas that can contribute to the improvement of the standard, procedures, tools and equipment. Very useful to be updated with latest TC57 WG10 developments and to refresh concepts through the workshop.”Bruno Miguel Soares, Researcher, Substation of the Future, R&D Nester
“Over many years, the IEC 61850 Europe conference has proven to be a very valuable meeting of minds, with a good mix of vendors and operators.”Anton van der Burgt, Marketing Director, Xelas Energy
“Perfect event for meeting colleagues in the IEC 61850 world: vendors for IEDs, tools, test-sets, TSOs, DSOs, engineering companies and IEC group members. It was interesting to see and hear what others are working with and where the standard is moving. I hope to be able to participate next year.”Anders Dahl Johnsen, Protection Engineer, Siemens
